6500 - SHOW COUNT INTERFACE (MAXINDEX)

What value is indicated on the 6500 Gigabit port for the maxIndex value?  The linecard is a WS-X6516-GBIC and SW ver 12.2.

94.                         qos6Inlost = 0
95.                         qos7Inlost = 0
96.                         qos8Inlost = 0
97.                         qos9Inlost = 0
98.                        qos10Inlost = 0
99.                        qos11Inlost = 0
100.                        qos12Inlost = 0
101.                        qos13Inlost = 0
102.                        qos14Inlost = 0
103.                        qos15Inlost = 0
104.                         pqueInlost = 0
105.                           Overruns = 0
106.                           maxIndex = 2637793

I am seeing this value incrementing, but no corresponding other values.  A search of the documentation resulted in no information.

6500 - SHOW COUNT INTERFACE (MAXINDEX)

check the output of the command:  "show interface flowcontrol" ....

the value in your maxIndex will match your RxPause counter on the interface.

this indicates that you are receiving flowcontrol pause frames from the device attached to the interface. 

it means that the device attached to the interface cannot buffer anymore data (the interface it is trying to use to transmit the data may be slower link speed than the interface connected to your switch).

here is an example from my switch:

#sh int gi5/1 flowcontrol

Port    Send FlowControl  Receive FlowControl  RxPause TxPause

        admin    oper     admin    oper

-----   -------- -------- -------- --------    ------- -------

Gi5/1   desired  on       desired  on          568102  0

#sh counter int gi5/1 | in maxIndex

106.                           maxIndex = 568102

Hope this helps.  Thanks!
